I have been learning to produce laser shows and now consider myself competent to go out on site either with a live setup or with a show that I have done in advance and deliver a good looking (and safe) show to a client. Some of these clients are large household names and major events. I work for freelance laser lighting companies never direct for the client. I have been on a training rate while I learn the software but now I am reaching the point where I can produce shows of high quality. But how much do I charge? Is there a going industry rate per 12 hour day? I need to find this out but its never spoken about! How much should I be expecting after an 8.30am start when I still at the venue getting out at 1am the following day? Whats the going rate to sit and programme a show (per day or per minute of show)? Even just a ballpark figure would be of help.
